In September 2007 the local VA entered into a “Shared Property” agreement with an organized group of Brentwood and Beverly Hills residents calling themselves the “Veterans Park Conservancy” to use 16+ acres of that land, rent-free, as a public park.
The LA Veterans Healthcare System has turned over one facility after another to private enterprises for pennies on the dollar rent. Most listings for the Veterans Wadsworth Theatre don’t even include the name “Veteran” anymore. The current deal with the VPC is just one more of the “slippery slope” deals will lead to the piece-by-piece fragmentation of the veterans’ property.
We must all stand together to protect this land on behalf of all veterans and not let this land be given away by the Veterans Administration. Once this land becomes “public property” the veterans will never see it again because reversing a “public agreement” will be next to impossible.
